Composed in 1998
~ For cello, overtone singing, shakuhachi,harmonic whirlies & tuned windchimes
Performed by Sarah Hopkins (cello, overtone singing & windchimes), Anne Norman (shakuhachi) & Chris Neville (Harmonic Whirlies).
As the title suggests "Remember the Joy, Life is Sacred" is a 'call to consciousness' , a 'wake-up call' to live more joyously.
As I sat playing a large pentatonic windchime it inspired a song : "I remember the things that give me joy.... " The melody of this song became the main cello theme in this piece. Sections of overtone singing & Harmonic Whirlies create beautiful cosmic tapestries which further uplift the spirit.
Harmonic Whirlies are celestial sounding overtone instruments I've created which are very easy to play & are powerful vibrational healing tools - http://www.harmonicwhirlies.com
